A special court would hear on Tuesday the bail plea of suspended sub-inspector Daya Nayak, held in a disproportionate assets case.

Maharashtra CID will also question Daya Nayak in the custodial death of a blast accused.

Nayak has pleaded that Anti-Corruption Bureau had already recorded his statement and seized certain documents from his premises. The statements of co-accused have also been recorded and nothing more remained to be investigated.

Nayak contended that he had "roots in the society" and would not abscond if released on bail.

The prosecution led by RV Kini has not yet taken a stand on his bail plea and would put forth its argument on March 14 when the matter comes up for hearing.

The court has also allowed Maharashtra CID to question Nayak regarding custodial death of a Ghatkopar bomb blast case accused Khwaja Yunus, on any working day as Nayak revealed during probe that he had knowledge about Younus' disappearance from police custody.

Younus mysteriously disappeared from police custody on January 10, 2003 when a police jeep carrying him to Aurangabad met with an accident near Ahmednagar.

However, co-accused Abdul Mateen alleged that he was tortured in custody as a result of which he died.

The court will also hear a plea made by Nayak to shift him from central prison to any other jail as he, who killed 83 gangsters in encounters, feared threat to his life in central prison.
